NMR Facility

University of Ottawa, Ottawa, Ontario
What the facility does

Multidisciplinary analytical laboratory that is fundamental to structure elucidation in chemistry, biochemistry, chemical engineering and biology

Areas of expertise

The NMR Facility is here to serve your needs. We are well equipped with both solids and liquids instruments to serve you, including instruments for routine use and instruments requiring more user input. Our philosophy is to provide instruction to enable users to conduct their own NMR (nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy) measurements. We also accept samples to be run on a service basis by a qualified technician. We are available to discuss chemical problems that NMR can help address.
